All aboard! Next stop: Progress. MSU unveiled a new autonomous bus that will serve students, staff and faculty beginning early 2022. Though a driver will be present at all times as a safety precaution, the bus can operate without any human interaction, and will be used to transport Spartans from the MSU Auditorium to the MSU Commuter Lot.

The trees are doing their best to obscure it, but Marshall-Adams Hall can’t help but stand out. Built in 1902, Marshall-Adams Hall, originally known as the Bacteriology Lab, earned its claim to fame as the first free-standing building dedicated to the teaching and research of bacteriology in the nation.
Though bacteriology has long since evolved into the departments of Microbiology and Public Health and the colleges of Natural Science, Human Medicine and Osteopathic Medicine, the building, housing the Department of Economics, still operates as a hub for teaching and research.
